for tuning in. tonight's lead, the mccain gang wants what it wants. today u.n. ambassador susan rice went to capitol hill to meet with the three republican senators who have been her harshest critics over what she said on sunday talk shows about the attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. it was a meeting ambassador rice requested to try and clear the air. she went to the meetings with the acting cia director. but the republican senators were not swayed, not in the least. in fact, it sounded like they had settled on their talking points. here's what they said after the meeting. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. it is clear that the information that she gave the american people was incorrect. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed more than i was before. here's what i can tell you. the american people got bad information on 16 september, they got bad information from president obama days after. it was unjustified. to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama three weeks before an troubled toda
that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state, very popular with president, has enormous regard for her: she was one of his top policy advisers during hit 2008 campaign. this is susan rice that did the five sunday shows a few days after the libya attack in which she put out the story, apparently they claim still these were the cia talking points that this was all a spontaneous protest over the video that went bad, but there's been a lot of contradiction of that. i think she'd have a tough time getting confirmed. she might get confirmed but it would be a real battle and the president has to decide whether he wants to have that battle. somebody else that is clear is desperate for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups th
a deal that gave money to a u.n. program supporting china'sone-child policy. >> there's been aot of e where ads in generalections. people have made up their mind, no ad will change their mind. but those ads -- >> in primaries they are deadly particularly in republican primaries and that ad in particular for newtgrinastating because it hit -- it was the kitchen sink. >> what did it say about him? >> it said thattize an insider, washington pal, and look he even pals around with nancy pelosi didn't we just fire her. >> didn't you see the loving looks they managed with the camera shot there. >> real quick on that. the interesting thing, if i were newt i wou the caption of him and nancy together that's what the people are looking for, partnership -- >> they were talking about global warming. >> it's not really. >> that was symbolic of the entire mitt romney campaign strategy in the primaries which was a sort of take no prisoners and attack the other guy strategy. it wasn't about philosophy. he did nothing to show mitt romney was committed conservative. it just sho
pelosi on global warming, but together, they cosponsored a bill that gave $60 million a year to a u.n. program supporting china's brutal one child policy. >> there's been discussion in my head and everywhere else about where ads work an election. no ad will change their mind. those ads out there -- >> primaries, they are deadly. and particularly in republican primaries and that ad in particular, for newt gingrich, buzz devastating because it hit -- it was the kitchen sink. it threw it all in there. >> what did it say about him? >> it said, you know, he's an insider, a washington pal. >> yeah. >> and he even pals around with nancy pelosi. isn't we just fire her? >> the loving looks they managed to work with the camera shot there. >> real quick on that, the interesting thing and i thought what -- if i were newt i would have pivoted off that and nancy that's what the people are looking together, the partnership work getting things done. >> but they were talking about global warming -- >> the other thing about that ad, that was sbo entire mitt romney campaign strategy in the primaries, ta
it right now, steve. that's for sure. ambassador john bolton is here, the former ambassador to the u.n., quite a roundup that steve provided for us. how do we get answers here? >> we won't get them from the administration. you saw from those political operatives that they have talking about this that their response to criticism is ad hominem arguments. they are not capable of responding. the tragedy on september 11 was a reflection of a failed obama administration world view, a view that the arab spring had brought democrat to libya in the middle-east, generally, that al qaeda is defeated and the war on terrorism is over. that's what led to the decisions well before the attack in benghazi. not to give enhanced security despite repeated requests from the people on the ground. that's why that cable that fox news came up with that katherine has reported, should have been a fire bell in the night at the state department when it came back to washington, almost four weeks before the attack. >> i have relied on the great reporting by katherine herig and jennifer grif and i know fox news in ge
with the u.n. to keep that attack from happening. he had made his intentions clear and then england and france just went behind his back and did it anyway and they did it a week before he was facing re-election. >> president dwight d. eisenhower is re-elected to the highest office in the land as world peace faces the greatest crisis since the second world war. the electoral victory comes after a tumultuous campaign in which the major, domestic and foreign policies of this administration were put sharply an issue. >> especially that last week. dwight eisenhower ultimately pressured our allies to end that war. they did end it. he won re-election decisively that year in a victory that was partly attributed to his handling of that unexpected sudden foreign policy disaster that landed in the middle of the campaign a week and a day before election day. 1956. real october surprises like that one almost never happen. the phrase "october surprise" is really overused. we talk about october surprises as if there is one every year, as if they happen all the time. in presidential politics they'r
was removed from u.n. ambassador susan rice's talking points. in the days following the deadly assault, rice said administration believed the attack was a reaction to an anti-islamic video. but, an associated press report says former cia director david petraeus testified on friday that he believed all along that the attack on the consulate was a terrorist strike. >> so let's -- before we set up these clips, let's make sure we set this up right. so we've been hearing, mark halperin, that susan rice said what she said because she was reading straight intel from the cia. we find out from david tet pet trace, this isn't true. that immediately david petraeus and intel officials knew this was an al qaeda attack. right? >> it's still kind of confusing. >> i'm basing that on "the new york times" reports and everything that i read through the weekend. >> totality of the reporting is there was another line coming out of the closed hearing was that they didn't want to say everything they knew in public because they didn't want the terrorists to know that tus government was on to them. >> i heard that.
they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target? then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america, in the capacity the state department that i would nominate her. >> are these republicans painting the president into a corner where he almost has to nominate her? >> they might and susan rice should send john mccain some flowers and thank him for this behavior, but the president's answer says why this is a good fight for him. if he takes them on over this, that is a win-win for this president because he will have a lot of people behind him, both in terms of public sentiment. we've got new polls today that suggests that where as people aren't quite thrilled with how the matter has been handled, they don't think the intention was to mislead the american people and other members of the senate have started to distance themselves from what i think is the three newest members of the bat crazy party. she went out and uses talking points not designed to mislead the american people, but were
of a conciliatory attitude towards u.n. ambassador susan rice. >> is there anything that ambassador rice can do to change your mind about her? >> sure. she can give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took. i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> she could conceivably get your vote for secretary of state? >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position. >> is this a case of bizarreo john mccain, the same guy that defended president obama against critics that said he was a muslim and can't be a president, and then he nominated sarah palin. >> i think it's another iteration of the game john mccain has been playing for a decade, goes on fox news and sounds like a moderate and then the "today" show and. how micro the republicans have kept this. susan rice owns libya in a real way. one of the people inside that room that pushed for the invasion. if the republicans thought they had some broader leverage here, if they thought they could make something out of libya as a whole, which may
. s. -- un security council held a closed- door consultation instead. following the consultations, members heard a report from the secretary. this is 50 minutes. >> a meeting of the security council is called to order. the provisional agenda of this meeting is the situation in the middle east, including the palestinian question. the agenda is adopted. the security council will now begin its consideration of item number two of the agenda. on behalf of the council, i welcome the secretary general, his excellency, mr. ban ki-moon who is joining the conversation at via telephone conference. i now give the floor to the secretary. >> thank you, distinguished members of the council, excellencies, ladies and gentleman. thank you for the opportunity to brief you today on my three- day visit to egypt, israel, the occupied palestinian territory, and jordan. since the situation in does that and israel escalated last week, i made it my priority to contribute to halt the violence with a priority aim of protecting civilians. i canceled a previously planned trip to travel to the middle east as a
explained. un best issloloathes structured time, and he let his aides know that spending a day in a hotel room awaiting results was unacceptable. the mood all there was resolute ly relax and playful. the campaign's chief strategist wandered to the back of the plane to shoot reporters with a gun." -- with a nerf joyce, oregon, on our republican line. give us your take on yesterday's election. caller: good morning. i hope i can fully say all that i feel this morning. funeral, so my emotions are kind of up. i just want to said that obama has a beautiful family. he is our leader, and god tells us to pray for our leaders. this is real important. my prayer is that the whole -- the whole nation's prayer is that obama will lead with that obama will lead with integrity
% of the raw vote is in as people look at the discrepancy there. connecticut,un, we talked about how this is a state on the one hand you would think a democrat could do well there, but she's a woman. she moderated her positions and she put a lot of money into it. >> she sure did, and she ran an entirely different campaign from the campaign she won last time. this was a sochter, more woman capaig las time she ran as a business success and told her personal story this time and was competitive. but chris enoughy, the democratic congressman, spent, as gwen mentions, $9 million-- not of his own money because he doesn't have it-- but he did win and it's a pickup for the democrats in the sense it was held by an independent, joe lieberman. >> the conventional view is if she had won this campaign last time she probably would have run it. it's to you to run against a national tide in a strong state red or blue. >> ifill: even with that much money. we have talked ad nausim about money and how it's corrupting thiks. >> i tend to think money is overrated. you have to get to a certain threshold to
. the un, everybody involved. egypt trying to broker peace also. what does the president need to do to move this process forward? >> he needs to get engaged. he needs to get engaged very seriously. i was struck this morning by looking at the papers, at the consensus expressed by "the washington post" editorial, which is very good, sometimes i disagree with them, but it's very good today, and a couple columnists on the op-ed page, and they all say the same thing which i endorse. namely, this is a real challenge to get at the heart of the problems. if we simply patch this up, somehow or other, between hamas and israel, be if we still patch it up a little bit between the palestinian authority and israel, we'll have a repetition in no time flat. but in the meantime two things are happening in the region, which are not going to be reversed easily. u.s. influence is declining, arab radicalism is intensifying. and that's not a good thing either for stability or the future of israel. >> how does the president engage most constructively to try to reverse at least one of those two trends to stop the
